You’d be surprised how many people shy away from wearing bright colours. And if you’re one of them, then this post is especially for you.
Knowing how to wear bright colours is a great skill to have, especially if you love fashion. Bright colours not only improve your mood but can brighten your skin tone and overall appearance. It’s one style trend that can’t go out of season.
So, if you really want to learn how to wear bright colours, here are some practical tips to help you with inspiration from fashion lover, Zina Anumudu!
When it comes to colours, we always advise starting small. This way you don’t do too much too soon, and learn as you include more colours. Here, Zina gives us a great way to do this. She’s layered a polka dot skirt over a black top and pants. The colours on the skirt aren’t overwhelming and still add a pop of colour to the look.
Pick colours that work with your skin
We can’t emphasize this enough – you always have to work with your skin tone. A great way to figure out what works for you is by placing the selected colour close to your face. If it steals the spotlight and makes your face look dull, then it’s not right. However, if it makes your face look brighter and more radiant, then it’s right for you!

Wear a bright coloured shoe
You can never go wrong with bold shoes. An easy way to learn how to wear bright colours is by adding a bright shoe to the mix. Grab a yellow, pink or blue shoe and mix things up in your outfit. Here, Zina takes a blue & white-themed outfit to the next level with yellow pumps.
Or a bright coloured handbag
If you like to keep your shoes neutral, then maybe a bright coloured bag would suffice. This works best because your bag can literally be any colour and still look great with your outfit.
You can’t go wrong with multicoloured dresses
This is a fail-safe you need to know. Multicoloured dresses save you from having to work out colours that match because they’ve done the work for you. Zina’s retro pleated dress is a perfect example, and we love how distinct her shoes are.
Or try matching sets
Don’t like dresses? That’s fine. How about matching set then? Just like the multicoloured dress, they already come in vast colour combinations, so all you have to do is pick.
And that’s about it. These tips should help you put together some amazing outfits every time. If you’d like more tips on colours, check out which nail colours will look great on dark skin here.
